I AM THE REAL DEAL.

You can see for yourself            ! But if I had to guess. . . I hear I'm fun and laid back :). I'm there to direct and guide you as much as you need. I know what it's like to be in front of a camera, so I make the process as relaxed and fun as possible :). I'm there to alleviate any photography fears and stress that you might have. It should be an enjoyable time! Every set of clients is different, and I work closely with each to really understand what kind of photography they are looking for. We then plan together their session to ensure they will love their photos. 

BACK

Are you insured? Do you have backup equipment?

I've been a full time photographer since 2010, but I've been shooting almost a decade. I've captured around 300 weddings all over (and outside of!) the country.

what are the benefits of hiring you?

Yes, absolutely to both! 

Having a background in graphic design allows me to enhance, correct, and manipulate images resulting in the most flawless photos possible. For instance, if I take a gorgeous photo, but your eyes are closed . . . no worries! I'll fix them and you'll never know. Is there a fly away hair? A wrinkle in your shirt? I'll take care of it :). Also, being a full time photographer means I get to spend all my energy and efforts with my clients and in the office. There's no competition for my time at another job! I don't have to rush my work and deadlines are always met. 

Do you have an education in photography?

I've won awards for my work, so on the technical side, I think that makes me "good" ;). A recent honor is from Experise.com (was ranked in the top 20 photographers out of 300 in the Heart of Illinois). I was judged on reputation, credibility, experience, availability, and professionalism. I love that my hard work and my drive to give couples a great photography experience was noticed! More than anything though, I genuinely care about your photos. I want you to love and cherish them forever. I shoot every session and every wedding as if it were my own. I run my business solely on principles and values. I treat my clients how I would want to be treated, and nothing less. 

what makes you a good photographer?

Yes! I am a 2009 graduate of ISU. I have a Bachelor's degree in Studio Arts with a major in Photography, background in Graphic Design, and a minor in Art History.
